Your Skin Type
Use a one ply tissue paper and press it against your face for 10 seconds or so, remove it and check the results. Repeat this on a few different areas on your face.
Oily skin will leave some stain on the tissue.
Dry skin wont leave any traces of oil nor moisture.
Normal skin may show some moisture on the tissue, but no traces of oil.
T-zone or combination skin will show oily parts and dry parts on the tissue.
Sensitive skin is usually thin and delicate. The pores are almost non existent. That skin type is prone to broken capillaries, redness and reacts very quickly to the environment and products.
Dry skin feels very tight, especially after cleansing and shows fine lines and wrinkles at an early age. Glide your hand over your cheeks and check for dry patches. It may also feel leathery.
Most people have combination skin. It's usually dry on the cheeks and oily in the t-zone which is the forehead, nose and chin. Oily skin tends to be shiny. When you touch the skin, especially the forehead, you'll feel the oil. The pores tend to be larger, you may see blackheads and be prone to zits, pimples and breakouts.
